Mistress - In Disgust We Trust

Artist: Mistress
Release: In Disgust We Trust


1. In Disgust We Trust

Rutting like a fucking beast
Leave the rest fucked over and deceased
So immersive, the darkness skin and sweat
‘Cause everyone deserves just what they get

Can see it light up like candles in their eyes
Believe fucking me it’s no surprise
Well gee, ain’t everything so fucking swell
Shut your mouth, don’t you dare tell

Sometimes it is the only way
To say the things you know you shouldn’t say
When words have crumbled into dust
Fuck them all, in disgust we trust

It’s like throwing pearls before the swine
But then those pearls ain’t exactly diving
Screaming noise in my head and I can see you naked
Now let’s hear you squeal like a stuck pig

Sometimes it is the only way
To say the things you know you shouldn’t say
When words have crumbled into dust
Fuck them all, in disgust we trust
In disgust we trust

Close your eyes and sink into the disease
It never helps however much we plead
The answer is pulsing in your blood
Fuck them all, in disgust we trust
In disgust we trust

2. Happily Ever Disaster

With a hazy mind and half a deck
You know you’ve got to go
One card wrong in the tumbling house
And all the walls must fall

For so long you held the ace
But didn’t want to play
And now your house of cards is gone
There’s nothing left to say
So beware the demon drink
Unhappiness assured
Never feel, no never think
All hail the demon god

Let us pray

So remember the music
The flashing lights
The lunatic excitement

For a time we stilled
Those panicked eyes
And soothed the savage beast
And still it comes back to this
Cannot cope, cannot fit
Never feel, no never think
The demon god unleashed

An ecstasy of fumbling
In the darkness breathing faster
But the outcome is inevitable
Happily ever disaster

Let us pray

You are not, will not, cannot be mine
So I’ll stand and watch just one more time
The end is always coming faster
Happily ever disaster

Let us prey

3. Fucking Fuck

Manipulating cynically
Stay the fucking fuck away from me
So proud, wearing that badge of honour
Mindless, brainless, soulless fucking cancer

Petty vanity
Accomplish nothing
Become less human
Oh so damn efficient

Grotesque and childish
Not even human
Answer the question
Do you know who you are?

You’re why we drink so much
You’re why we couldn’t care less
Sink lower than everyone else
To rise above

A rootless tree but still ascent
Cannot break nor ever bend
Contempt for the fellow man
Stay the goddamn fuck away from me

Petty vanity
Accomplish nothing
Become less human
Oh so damn efficient

Grotesque and childish
Not even human
Answer the question
Do you know who you are?

You’re why we drink so much
You’re why we couldn’t care less
Sink lower than everyone else
To rise above

4. Static

Static
A brain full of static and screaming chaos
A life standing still in the rain
Still praying for the payoff

You’re right, you’re so fucking right
But still you just don’t quite fit
You’re good, you’re so fucking good
We really hope you enjoy it
When you’re left to eat shit

Live by the law
Die by the law
Fuck the law
D’you even know what her name was?

Play by the rules
Bend the rules
Fuck the rules
Don’t understand what they stand for

Always the surrogate, never the prize
There was never a reason but always a rhyme
Voices always speaking but nothing ever being said
Listen out for bed springs creaking
Nails in the coffin of hope so fleeting
Just a matter of time ’til you’re out
Out of control and out of your fucking head

Live by the law
Die by the law
Fuck the law
D’you even know what her name was?

Play by the rules
Bend the rules
Fuck the rules
Don’t understand what they stand for

Wasn’t it all
A great big waste
Weren’t we all
So young and in so much haste
I know you were
Just taking time to be yourself
But living in fool’s heaven
You’ve sent another fool to hell

Live by the law
Die by the law
Fuck the law
D’you even know what her name was?

Play by the rules
Bend the rules
Fuck the rules
Don’t understand what they stand for

5. At Arms Length

So here we are, this old familiar stench
This place is terrible and it’s time to cause offense

Concatenated the same series of events
With dripping jaws, the war of feigned love’s injusticed
With shattered nerves, please break
I make me so fucking sick
So let’s do it all again
And watch as she sucks dick

Come dance with me
But keep me at arm’s length

Such strain’s repetitive
But no more unite and conquer
So many bonds untied
I’m stepping out alone

To fight the same old war but it’s different from the last
Red hands and a leaden sky, but I can’t forget the past
So bring it on, you fucking dicks, come kick us in the teeth
We’re already broken, what more could you achieve?

Make sure you keep me at arm’s fucking length

6. Alcohole

Come join me in the alcohole
When outside it’s oh so cold
Judge the contents of the heart by the state of the eyes

When you spend a lifetime
Living in the night time
Raise your glass and forget yourself
Raise a glass and drink to the dawn
A little too much to take
But ain’t that always the way?

When your final tender hope
Died in your arms and you’re left a fake
What’s the point of carrying on
When you’ve failed the only test you ever wanted to take?

So whoever be your god
Just worship him well

Sleep away the daytime
‘Cause you only live in the night
Too little, much too late
But ain’t that always the way?

Lover
Lose her
Liquor

Such a heady cocktail
Of Xanax and no dope
Such a fucking cocktail
Of liquor and no fucking hope

7. Whiskey Tastes Better

To bury the sun
So pyrrhic a victory
Poetry in the shape of her hair
They get you like that, you should always beware

Beautiful was too clumsy a word
To touch such poetry, it’s fucking absurd
What were you thinking?
Just keep on drinking
Whiskey tastes better

We are the cracked, we are the shattered
We judge our competence by broken or battered
You’re on the edge?
Well take my hand
And we’ll put our best feet forwards

We are the cracked, we are the shattered
We judge our competence by broken or battered
You’re on the edge?
Well take my hand
And we’ll put our best feet forwards

All the parts of you that believed
In the tender times that dared to hope
Take them to the river like orphans in a sack
And drown them

Counting the time it takes to sever
Dying hands were to be joined forever
Oh god, sometimes there ain’t enough drink in the world
Sever the ties, damned be the past
You always know that hope never lasts
Whiskey tastes better when you’ve nothing left to lose

We are the cracked, we are the shattered
We judge our competence by broken or battered
You’re on the edge?
Well take my hand
And we’ll put our best feet forwards

All the parts of you that believed
In the tender times that dared to hope
Take them to the river like orphans in a sack
And drown them

We’ll render pure
We’ll expurgate
Shut up you stupid fuck, it’s all too late
It’s always too fucking late

8. Me Ves Y Sufres

Something ’round here stinks like shit
And it’s spewing out the hole in your face

But the heat’s on
I’ve gotta jackrabbit all the plastic accusations in place

Me ves y sufres
Just keep your knife damn fucking close
Me ves y sufres
Always planted in your back when you need it most
Me ves y sufres
Piece of shit trying to fuck me over
Me ves y sufres
You see me and you suffer

Payback’s a bitch
A fucking bitch
A fuck ass bitch

Me ves y sufres
Just keep your knife damn fucking close
Me ves y sufres
Always planted in your back when you need it most
Me ves y sufres
Piece of shit trying to fuck me over
Me ves y sufres
You see me and you suffer

Payback’s a bitch
A fucking bitch
A fuck ass bitch

Me ves y sufres
Just keep your knife damn fucking close
Me ves y sufres
Always planted in your back when you need it most
Me ves y sufres
Leading me down to be slaughtered like swine
Me ves y sufres
But surprise boy, it’s payback time!

9. Talking To God

Black paint is peeling from the inside of a face
Worn as a mask to cover the naked mind
It’s all lies and subterfuge, smoke and mirrors
Life for sale, one owner, badly soiled and stained

Fuck it up the arse, I don’t want it
Take it back, I’m done with it
How damn wrong can your whole goddamn life be?
You call it gift but I call it dirt
You hear me, God? Go fuck yourself
You might be God but it don’t mean shit to me

The last remnants of a dream
That’s been bound and gagged then fucking died
Lose your head and it can really blow your mind

Locust plague haemorrhage, hands of blood and piss
I’ll be motherfucker, king in the latrine

So place your bets, I’ll take your bets
No time for tears and no regrets
Just hate yourself for what you don’t have the balls to be
When it’s all unravelling
So Dionysian, ecstatic
Talking to God with a microphone made of steel

No regrets, no regrets
Naked and bleeding, but no regrets
Live now, only for the day when you can sleep forever
No more giving your love away like so much cheap wine
The air screams, no tears
The air bleeds, no tears
And no coming back

Part of the deal, you knew the possibilities
Aware, of sound mind and fucked
You wanted all this porcelain
You always knew it could be cracked
And now it’s finally smashed
It’s finally broken beyond repair
Spilt milk runs red, one ticket to hell please
Haha!
